I hired DMV Birth Doulas and was excited to be paired with Nikita, the owner of my post-op doula services. First, I had not heard of such a program but I was intrigued after researching doulas. I had an abdominal myomectomy which resulted in a multi-day hospital stay and six weeks of recovery. Nikita provided me with much-needed education. Even though I LOVE my OBGYN, Nikita told me things that my doctor failed to. When it was time for my pre-op appointment my doctor was shocked and pleasantly surprised by my knowledge and informed questions. Best yet, when I returned home, Nikita met me and my wife and she cooked a week’s worth of hearty and delicious meals to help in my healing process. I truly feel that her assistance led to a quick recovery process. My wife and I are now about to start our fertility journey again and we will be hiring Nikita for doula services very soon! If I could give more stars I would!
